Miller v. Four Winds Int. Corp., No. 2:10-cv-00254-CWD, 2011 WL 5080032 (D. Idaho Oct. 25, 2011)

Key Insight: Where plaintiff testified in deposition that she had saved relevant voice messages two years prior and that they were still available but later indicated that the messages were lost as a result of water damage to her phone and the passage of time (her service carrier indicated the messages were automatically deleted after a certain time), the court found that because she had previously indicated that the messages were available and because there was no evidence presented of when the messages became inaccessible, spoliation had occurred; court indicated an adverse inference ?may be appropriate? but withheld a final determination until it could consider the evidence offered at trial

Nature of Case: Product liability
